Similar in design to Franklin Gothic, News Gothic was one of a number of sans serif faces manufactured by American Type Founders in the early years of the twentieth century. Initially cut as a light sans, heavier versions were made in the 1940s and 50s along with some condensed weights. The News Gothic font family offers an uncomplicated design that is well suited for use in newspapers and magazines for headlines and in advertisements.
Monotype News Gothic supports 136 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, Russian, German, French and Greek in Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
